Covariant Transformation

15 Similarly to Eq. 1.24, a covariant component transformation (recognized by subscript) will be defined as _

We note that contrarily to the contravariant transformation, the covariant transformation uses the same transformation coefficients as the ones for the base vectors.

16 Finally transformation of tensors of order one and two is accomplished through

dxk

(1.28)

rq = dxrk

dxr dxs

(1.29)

rij = dx dxrrs
